molly: we begin in the united states where campaigning for the presidential election is in full swing. thursday night the content republican candidates -- the top 10 republican candidates met on televisedthe first republican debate. donald trump was front and center but drew both cheers and jeers as his rivals struggled for attention. our correspondent has more. tactic for a would-be nominee as donald trump refused to rule out standing as an independent candidate. donald trump: i will not make that pledge at this time. to rand paul questioning his loyalty. rand paul: he is already heading his bet on the clintons. as a he does not run republican, maybe he support clinton or runs as an independent. >> trumpeted win applause when
he replaced to build the wall on the mac -- when he pledged to build the wall at the mexican border. that you are part of the war on women. donald trump: the big problem this country has is being politically correct. [cheers and applause] donald trump: i have been challenged by so many people, and i do not have time for total political correctness. to be honest with you, this country does not have time either. thrown the normal political rulebook out the window, and so far it is working in his favor. >> donald trump is hitting a nerve in this country. .eople are frustrated, fed up they do not think the government is working for them. for people who want to tune him out, they are making a mistake. now, he has his solutions, some of us have other solutions. >> republican heavyweights like
jeb bush, marco rubio, and marco -- and scott walker had the chance to put their ideas forward, but it was still donald trump's show. molly: with more on the night's today, i am joined by a professor from new york. thank you for being with us on the program. what did you make of the debate? >> i think your report headline has it right. trump absolutely dominated the debate. he was unorthodox to say the least. trump was trump. it began with a question that asked for a nonverbal response you willyour hand if refuse to pledge to not run as an independent. it was asking candidates to raise their hands. trump managed to turn that into a one minute speech by himself.
he gains attention which is why he is at the top of the pole. his interaction with megyn kelly might prove to be an important one. -- called him out on how to on his insulting women. all the people on the stage last night were men. his response to her might have played well on tv for men, but i wonder how many republican women might say to themselves this is a man who has insulted women over and over again and i want to give that a second thought. having said that, he got all the attention, absolutely. there are some second-tier candidates who did well for themselves. one is john kasich. he was relatively unknown, at the bottom of the top 10 before the polling -- in the polling before the debate. i would not be surprised if he moved up a little bit. he was optimistic, energetic. he touted his experience and differentiated himself from
donald trump without insulting him. he could get into the top tier and become a vice presidential candidate. but if jeb bush stumbles, john kasich could become the alternative as a mainstream governor from an important state. molly: you mentioned in the beginning saying that it opened up with him saying he would not endorse, for the moment, a republican nominee if it was not him by the end of these primaries. that hurt his campaign at all? ian: probably not. that was another outlandish thing. he speaks his mind as a non-politician. that was a very non-politician thing to say. beald trump is not going to the republican nominee. let's be really clear about that. is getting about 25% or 30% of poles in the republican primaries. he reminds me a lot of ross perot, who was an independent
millionaire businessman who ran for president, came out of nowhere in the can anyone around this time, 1992. in the summer of 1992, he was leading not only within the polls of a particular party, he was leading national polls, leaving sitting president george h w bush, and democratic nominee bill clinton. although he made an impact in the final election, he only got 18% and did not win a single state. i would be surprised if donald trump managed to get 18% or much better than that among republican primary voters in the end. he will fade. but for right now he is having an impact because he is largely sucking up the attention of everybody from primary voters in these polls. bushbly, he is helping jeb clear away the underbrush, all the other relatively mainstream candidates. i think in the end he will fade
and it will be a matter of jeb bush stumbling. last night jeb bush was not the best candidate on the stage, but he did not stumble either. that is all he needed to avoid doing. molly: thank you for joining us on the show. we appreciate it. a french hostage who was abducted in yemen has been freed. isabelle prime was working as a consultant for the world bank when she was kidnapped in the country in february. the french presidency concern -- confirmed her release friday. our correspondent has more on what is known. >> after almost six months in the captivity in yemen, isabelle prime is a free woman. primeompatriot isabelle has been freed tonight." the 30-year-old frenchwoman was seized by gunmen in february in

continue. the international community cannot hold bashar al-assad responsible for the attacks because no one came forward claiming to use chlorine gas. now russia and the united states have come together in support of further security resolutions. john kerry: what we are trying to do is get the on the mere finding of the fact that it may have been used and actually find out who used it. designate accountability for its use. what we will achieve, we believe with this resolution, is the creation of a mechanism which will actually enable us to do that. >> no information yet on how that resolution will work. molly: across to norway now
